"Flee, or suffer my wrath!"Late afternoon
"The Phantom of the Warehouse made an appearance."
"There's awful magicks in there."
"Can I help it that Alex is an ass man?"
Kristi led the way into her shared duplex. "Hello? Anyone else here?"
"I'm upstairs," Zaina called back.
Kristi stepped aside to usher in Ayel. The tawny-haired woman opened her jacket to let Ginger jump down. The tiny woman dashed towards the kitchen. Kristi hung up both her jacket and Ayel's coat before going further. Ayel took the shopping bag she carried into the living room, setting it down on the faded couch. "There's gratitude for you," the blonde woman said.
"Try not to upset the capricious fae, Ayel." Kristi dropped down on the couch. "I can almost hear normally again."
Ayel sat beside Kristi. "This is getting dangerous. We need to tell Morton to get real security."
"But we're close, Ayel. The Phantom wouldn't have shown up if we weren't."
"We're getting close? Kristi, what if the next time, the Phantom decides to blow up the warehouse?"
